Citrus, spice and yeast, but unfortunately also a slight vegetable aroma. Orange-yellow, cloudy, clumps of yeast hard to avoid. Spicy tastenotes dominate (coriander, salt, pepper) together with minerals. A bit citrus in the middle - spicy finish. Relatively light body, sparkly mouthfeel. Not very harmonic brew.

Dull n dusty orange color with small dissapearing head. Aroma is dominated by a whift of oranges and malt. Watery flavor with dominant citrus/orange taste and some yeast. Also spices (coreander) and some caramelly sweetness. Im not extremely impressed, but it was very drinkable...

Darker, but clear gold; good fluffy head with yellowish shine, dissipating. Initial yeasty, very meaty aroma's go over in citrussy & peppery nose. Tart, citrussy taste with wheat obvious. Palate has a strange, chaff or oatmeal-like flavour. Initially quite some acidity, even adstringency, very lemon-like in character. Finish hints at a sweeter stickiness, without reaching it. Aftertaste seems really peppery. A decent wit, with a good dose of citrus. From Dupont, however, I'd expected some more hops to kick *ss.

This is a rather atypical Belgian wit, First of all, at 5.5% it is a little stronger than most others (apart from Abbaye des Rocs' Blanches des Honelles). Secondly, it is rather less hazy than many of its peers. However, it compensates for that by being packed with big flaky yeast particles, most of which reached the bottom of the glass before I did. The colour is mid gold and carbonation is modest. The aroma is grassy, with less wheat influence than expected. However, the real surprise is in the flavour, which is entirely dominated by intense lemon tartness. The finish is acidic and distinctly sour. This is an interesting and unusual witbier that retains a refreshing character, but I'm not convinced it is 100% successful. For me, the lemon rush is just too strident to be hugely enjoyable. Bottled (25cl).

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2004
Hazy light yellow color, white head. Strange aroma: Hay, undefined fruit and some alcohol. Fresh though somewhat watery and thin. Citrus, spices, coriander and hops. Nice taste but too light.

Ernest (6264) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 6, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2011 Bottle (750mL, as Foret Blanche). Head is initially large, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy light yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), with light notes of lemon zest and pepper. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Light body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Refreshing, but plain and ordinary.

skortila (4558) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2003
Fruity (banana) and spicy smell, bit weak. Cloudy, yellow coloured. Sweet, banana taste, becomes more sour and bitter in the end. Palate is refreshing.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2003
Small white head. Straw-coloured. A little sweetness in the aroma which is also acidic/champagne-like. Fresh taste with a little sweetness plus acidity. Easy drinking. Will do well on a warm summers day.

Mads Langtved (2245) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2003
Fine Belgian White. Strong coriander notes all over the beer. The wheat is not very obvious at first, but as the beer sinks deeper in your stomach the wheat declare it's presense.

Ungstrup (29484) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2003
An unclear yellow beer with no head. The aroma is faint with notes of sweetness, sourness, and some sharpness as if it has been wild fermented? The flavor is sharp and sour (wild fermentation?) but also dry, wheaty, and a little sweet. It ends of on a pretty sour note with no sweetness. A somewhat weird flavor.
